Chronic Disease & Elderly Care

Reading a Braille with Doctor

Geriatric Medicine

At My Clinic Plus East, we understand that older adults have special healthcare needs that can make their medical care more complicated. More than half of adults aged 65 and older have multiple medical problems, such as:

 

  • Heart disease

  • Diabetes

  • Arthritis

  • Alzheimer’s disease

  • High blood pressure

  • Prescription Management

Physical Therapy

At My Clinic we understand that as people age, their bodies may experience limitations and require assistance to stay flexible. Our team is equipped to offer basic physical therapy services and can refer patients to trusted physical therapists as necessary.

Proper Nutrition

Seniors have unique nutritional requirements compared to children, young adults, and middle-aged adults, as their bodies undergo certain changes as they age. These age-related changes impact how the body breaks down food, leading to different dietary needs and shifts in appetite. Therefore, seniors need a balanced diet of high-fiber foods and healthy fats to support their health. At My Clinic Plus East, our staff is well-equipped to provide valuable advice on the evolving nutritional needs of seniors.

Mental and Social Needs

As we age, we face new challenges that can impact our mental and physical health. Mental illness, memory problems and eating disorders are common in the elderly population. We understand that growing older isn’t easy, but we are here to provide you with the care and support you need to maintain your overall well-being.
